Pace -setting old students of St John’s Grammar School, IleIfe will break new grounds tomorrow with the commissioning of N20 million road upgraded with 5,965 inter-locking blocks.

The brainchild of the 1979 to 1984 set, the road is 150 metres length and six metres wide with dual bellmouth at both ends.


With one-sided open drain of 150 metre kerb, the inter-locking is expected to last in view of the use of laterite as aubgrade and application of layers of materials to ensure that plant based waste do not percolate.

The construction, which took 14 weeks, was put to structural test successfully by running a vehicle at 25 metres.per hour.

Commending the set, president of St John’s Grammar School Old Boys Association SJOBA, Dr. Odunayo Osoba

said the SJOBA continues to set the standards for other alumni associations to follow

He recalled how other sets have built a new block of toilets, rehabilitated blocks of classrooms, teachers” quarters and the library.

His words: ” The 1979-84 set has raised the bar of giving back to the alma mater with this gigantic project. I believe other sets shall set their eyes on higher goals.”

The governor of Osun State, Senator Demola Adeleke is expectef to commission the project.
